LCA Science- Measuring Air Quality October 2021

Our LCA students installed diffusion tubes in 4 locations around the school grounds as part of the 6th GLOBE Program for air quality. Click here to see pictures. 

Insect boxes were also made and put in place in a joint effort by our JCA and LCA horticulture students. They are looking forward to monitoring the activity as the insects take up residence there! See Gallery for pictures. 


Other Class Activities

Before mid term some 3rd years got busy dissecting hearts. A good way to revise for their assessments after midterm. When the topic was covered last year, they never got to carry out the practical. See more pictures in Gallery.
